Glenn Greenwald: Where do the abuses of the last decade from Bush and Obama rank when compared to prior assaults in the name of war?
This, to me, has always been the most uniquely pernicious aspect of the War on Terror civil liberties assaults of the last decade: they will not end when the “war” does because the “war” will have no end. Each new power is embedded permanently into the political framework, incrementally transforming the political culture and the species of government itself.
